You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
A more educated society will naturally be more productive.
I remember a case where the CEO of a large company was selling drugs to his manager's. He never got a random drug test, and kept his position. On the other hand, at the same company several tow motor operator's were given random drug tests. They turned up positive for marijuana and were immediately fired.

the prevalence of negative "externalities" is almost certainly much higher for all of these.
i don't support testing for any of them. you're either doing a good job, or you're not. since workers have basically no rights these days, a business can fire someone without an intrusive piss test. i'm for preventing businesses from testing with the exception of driving / other high risk jobs, and in cases of accidents.
